Lighthouse Tag

Designed by: Jim Cargo
Skill Level: Beginner

Here's a fast project that makes good use of fun fabrics. Use this idea to make bookmarks, scrapbook page embellishments, etc.

Materials needed:

  • one paper tag
  • small square cut from a fabric print (we found this lighthouse  fabric at Walmart)
  • Kreinik Iron-on Ribbon in 6400 Blue Bell (or in a color to match your print)
  • Kreinik Iron-on #16 Braid in 6450 Royal Blue to make the birds
  • Teflon Press Cloth
  • Mini iron or household iron
  • glue stick


1. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.

2.  Glue the fabric swatch to the tag.

3. Outline the fabric swatch with the 1/8" Iron-on ribbon: lay the thread at a starting point, cover with a Teflon Press Cloth, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue working the design in sections in this manner.

4. Make birds by ironing the #16 Braid 6450 Royal Blue in the same manner.

5. Weave pieces of metallic ribbon through the tag's hole to finish off your tag.
